Dead Girl Walking Book Excerpt:

I beg the young woman to breathe as I desperately try to save her life. I catch a glimpse of her face and it’s like looking in a mirror. We have the same chestnut hair, the same heart-shaped face. She is gripping rose petals, like she had been holding a bouquet. Wake up, please, you could be my sister… My mother disappeared when I was a child, and my father refused ever to speak about her. When I’m called to the scene of a crime and look into victim Ann Hart’s pretty face, it sends shivers up my spine. I’ve never met her before, but we could be related. Am I investigating the murder of my own little sister? I know I will never rest until I find the person who did this, but it seems that Ann’s killer is not done yet. First someone breaks into my apartment when I am asleep. And then he sends me a bouquet of blood-red roses just like the ones Ann was clutching… I’m leading the case, but am I also the next victim? Just when I think I’ve got a handle on Ann’s killer, he strikes again. I am standing in the freezing morgue as the white sheet is pulled back. It’s Bert Gibbons, my close friend and a local journalist who was investigating Ann’s death. I know it’s a warning: don’t come any closer or you’ll be next. Can I catch this deadly killer or am I just a dead girl walking? Readers are utterly hooked on Dead Girl Walking! “I absolutely devoured this book!… Completely been captivated… I need more.

State of Terror Book Excerpt:

AN INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER​ Named one of the most anticipated novels of the season by People, Associated Press, Time, Los Angeles Times, Parade, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Guardian, Publishers Weekly, and more. From the #1 bestselling authors Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny comes a novel of unsurpassed thrills and incomparable insider expertise—State of Terror. After a tumultuous period in American politics, a new administration has just been sworn in, and to everyone’s surprise the president chooses a political enemy for the vital position of secretary of state. There is no love lost between the president of the United States and Ellen Adams, his new secretary of state. But it’s a canny move on the part of the president. With this appointment, he silences one of his harshest critics, since taking the job means Adams must step down as head of her multinational media conglomerate. As the new president addresses Congress for the first time, with Secretary Adams in attendance, Anahita Dahir, a young foreign service officer (FSO) on the Pakistan desk at the State Department, receives a baffling text from an anonymous source. Too late, she realizes the message was a hastily coded warning. What begins as a series of apparent terrorist attacks is revealed to be the beginning of an international chess game involving the volatile and Byzantine politics of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran; the race to develop nuclear weapons in the region; the Russian mob; a burgeoning rogue terrorist organization; and an American government set back on its heels in the international arena. As the horrifying scale of the threat becomes clear, Secretary Adams and her team realize it has been carefully planned to take advantage of four years of an American government out of touch with international affairs, out of practice with diplomacy, and out of power in the places where it counts the most. To defeat such an intricate, carefully constructed conspiracy, it will take the skills of a unique team: a passionate young FSO; a dedicated journalist; and a smart, determined, but as yet untested new secretary of state. State of Terror is a unique and utterly compelling international thriller cowritten by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 67th secretary of state, and Louise Penny, a multiple award-winning #1 New York Times bestselling novelist.

The Deal Book Excerpt:

Wouldn't it be nice to have hot, funny, rule-breaking Angels protecting and fighting your corner. Keeping an eye on those who slip through law enforcement's fingers? Well here you go... the Fallen. You're welcome. Feisty Amy Fox is a new Angel, but for how long? Avenging personal scores, dishing out tough karma on crime gangs, traffickers, drug dealers, serial killers, rapists, domestic and animal abusers, lusting after her partner, avoiding his ex's and competing with hellish Warlords, all without her Unit's authorisation, will have her thrown below ground! At the age of four, Amy was taken...She survived.. A week later, another little girl was taken...She didn't. Angry that a bad man has gotten away with murder, young Amy Fox makes a deal with God. When she dies, if she's been a good girl, would God let her sit on a cloud for a while, invisible, to get bad people who slip through his fingers? Her deal and God long forgotten, career girl Amy mysteriously dies. Her lifeless body is found beneath a London underground commuter train. She awakens in the afterlife to discover an international network of like-minded souls who've all made the same deal. A sophisticated MI5-esque justice machine sits in the skies, protecting, righting wrongs, tracking criminals, and working within strict rules of play...all against time. Each country's Unit shares intelligence, surveillance, and resources to deactivate dangerous situations. The only evidence they leave behind during their earthly visits is a small white feather sashaying to the ground. In a chaotic world, powerful adversaries try to close her Unit down. A complex SAS vigilante has been assigned to work as her partner, but with his jealous violent ex-girlfriend on her heels and with her own vendetta to settle, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal with God was a mistake. REVIEWS "The Deal is blissfully raw and absolutely perfect. 5★ for days." "Completely different from anything I have ever read; it is an outstanding book." "It got me! It's been a very long time since I have read a book that I, A. Couldn't put down and B. I didn't want it to end!" "Plots intertwine twist and turn, it's addictive." "Hard to put down - a must read that keeps you guessing." "Could not put this down - enjoy reading all her work. Am now desperately waiting for the next one in the series." "SCCunningham sent me on a vivid acrobatic journey. The text is detailed, flawless, and wonderful. The Deal is so descriptive I felt as if I was reading line for line an investigative report. The Deal is perfect." "A riveting unusual story-line that keeps you guessing till the end."

The Other Passenger Book Excerpt:

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD ''The Other Passenger is just brilliant; gripping from the first page with an incredible first person narrative and a sense of place that pulls you through the pages fast enough to make your head spin. Louise Candlish just gets better and better, I love her'' Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs You''re feeling pretty smug about your commute to work by riverboat. No more traffic gridlock or getting stuck on the tube in tunnels (you''re claustrophobic). Now you''ve got fresh air, an iconic Thames view, a whole lifestyle upgrade. You''ve made new friends on board -- led by your hedonistic young neighbour, Kit -- and just had your first official ''water rats'' get-together. The day after the drinks, Kit isn''t on the morning boat. The river landmarks are all the same, but something''s off. When you disembark, the police are waiting. Kit''s wife, Melia, has reported him missing and another passenger saw you arguing on the last boat home after your drinks. Police say you had a reason to lash out at him. To threaten him. You protest. You and Kit are friends -- ask Melia, she''ll vouch for you. And who exactly is pointing the finger? What do they know about your private lives? No, whatever coincidences might have occurred last night, you are innocent, totally innocent. Aren''t you? Praise for The Other Passenger: ''I''m a HUGE fan of Louise Candlish''s writing but she really knocks it out of the park with this one, with its Hitchcockian atmosphere of mounting dread and almost unbearable suspense, building to its astonishing conclusion. And it''s all so frighteningly credible because the characters are so brilliantly drawn, so knowable. A must read!'' Lucy Foley, author of The Guest List ''A smart, twisty thriller that explores how money can warp relationships and destroy lives. A compulsive read that builds to an unimaginable climax. I couldn''t put it down!'' Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door ''A novel like a roulette wheel at full tilt: smooth, hypnotic, relentless, exciting -- and ultimately, just as unpredictable... Like every Candlish thriller, The Other Passenger is psychological suspense at its most elegant and sinister'' AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window ''A stunning masterwork of style and suspense. The Other Passenger is one of those novels that grabs us from the start, then keeps us up all night by brilliantly peeling back the layers of the story until we arrive--shockingly--at the truth. I can''t think of another novel in which the characters are so perfectly drawn'' Jeffery Deaver Praise for Louise Candlish ''Prepare to be gripped;Louise Candlish shows us the dark side of suburbia - and of ourselves'' Erin Kelly ''Sharp satire and a plot that builds to a roiling boil with a couple of oh-so-clever final twists in close succession: Louise Candlish is one very clever writer'' Sarah Vaughan ''Twists aplenty, and such wonderful observation - I loved it'' Clare Mackintosh ''An addictive, twisty page-turner that will give you nightmares about the suburban dream'' Alice Feeney ''A delicious slice of suburban noir. I loved it'' Harriet Tyce ''Oozing with scandal, it''s a compelling read'' Woman & Home ''A devilishly good thriller with a wicked ending. Loved it'' Laura Kemp ''Utterly gripping'' RED ''Louise Candlish captures the mores of middle-class life and our worst, curtain-twitching tendencies like no one else'' RED, online ''Full of marvellously toxic characters'' Best
